Summary 2017: Changes by the efforts of the community

At present, LPSD has been working with four main communities, including the Son La hydropower resettlement community; community which is affected by pesticide pollution caused by Nicotex Thanh Thai company (Cam Van, Cam Tam, Yen Lam Commune, Thanh Hoa Province); community which is concerned about land and budget management in Tho Xuan, Thanh Hoa Province; community which is affected by Hai Phong Thermal Power Plant 1 & 2. Looking back to 2017, LPSD has seen changes coming from the community and from other stakeholders as follows:

-         The case of resettled people in Cu Pe village, Muong Bon commune, Mai Son district, Son La province:

Citizens have received the attention of the Government and state agencies, include direction by the Government Office and Department of Cooperatives and Rural Development (DCRD).

Thus, changes in 2017 are due to the active participation of state regulators and stakeholders, and in particular the contribution of individuals in communities. It is the initiative of the community to ensure that their rights and legitimate interests is the cause to promote state agencies to pay attention and have full responsibility to the people. These small or large changes are great encouragement for LPSD as well as individuals in each community and this helps LPSD to be more confident in the work we are doing, believing that the law is well implemented in practice.
